Choco is a one Michelin starred restaurant in Cordoba, Spain. The meal starts in the lounge area of the restaurant with some drinks and some very delicious amuse bouche.
The highlight of this section of the meal was this bluefin tuna pastry.
As Spain is a big supplier of blue fin tuna, I tried many places but was largely disappointed. The tuna was either over sauced, or prepared poorly. I wanted a Japanese type simple preparation which allows the fabulous product to shine on its own. This bite delivered!
Next, we were brought into the kitchen, and introduced to the sous chef who was preparing the next amuse – a delicious smoked meat (I thought it was goat but do not remember exactly anymore).
Finally, we were led into the dining room. Here was the menu for the evening.
The first course was a salmorejo which is like a gazpacho, but typical of this region of Spain.
…and then we met the bread god with all his goodies!
…and then the desserts
Service was very friendly and good. The chef eventually came out and took a photo with us. I was very full at the end. If you are in Cordoba, I would recommend this restaurant. 9.5/10.
